Mandela’s civic organization to receive Dole prize

KSAL StaffOctober 7, 2013

The Dole Leadership Prize is going to a civic organization started by former South Africa President Nelson Mandela.

The Robert Dole Institute of Politics plans to present the 2013 Dole prize to Mandela’s great-grandson, Luvuyo Mandela, on Oct. 27 at the University of Kansas. The $25,000 monetary prize is to benefit the Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory.

The prize is awarded annually to an individual or group whose public service leadership inspires others.

Mandela, who is 95, was incarcerated for 27 years in South Africa. He was released in 1990 and served as president of the country from 1994 to 1999.

Bill Lacy, director of the Dole Institute, says he can’t think of anyone more deserving of the 10th anniversary Dole Leadership Prize than Mandela.
